The place where King Haakon and Crown Prince Olav sought shelter from German bombers in April 1940 when they were being hunted by the German occupying forces. The Peace Grove next to the Royal Birch was founded by Knut odegard, president of the Bjornson festival in 1997. It symbolises the continuing struggle for freedom, peace and human dignity both today and in the future. Among those who planted trees are presidents, Nobel laureates, writers and Thor Heyerdahl.
